Fig Verte

Verte (Green Ischia)

Ficus carica

Verte ripens about the same time as LSU Purple, so best to grow in zone 7 - 8. In a long season fruits will dry on the tree around October. Very sweet and good for drying. Since they ripen with their outside color green, they will fool the birds. The dark red flesh is in total contrast to the green skin. Strawberry is used to describe the inside color of the fruit. Also called Green Ischia. In our area plants are bush like and of small stature like Violet de Bordeaux. Space about 8' - 10' circle in Zone 6 - 7 and space 12'-15' circle in Zone 8.
